    We loved Young Island on our honeymoon and it was even better when we went last year for our Daughter’s wedding and our 50 th anniversary. The staff are wonderful, so polite and willing to do anything for you. They organized both celebrations with delicious food and we all had so much fun.. All twenty one of us had a fabulous time. The surroundings are beautiful and the kids had a wonderful time in the pool and with the organized activities. Can’t wait to go back.
